Save the world from your computer

Wanna save the world while sitting on your bum?  Well, ok, maybe not completely “save”, but if I know the people who follow EcoEtsy, I know they certainly like to be proactive and help make the world a better place.

Here’s a site I recently found that can help us do just that. TomNod.com is a website that is specially made for users to search satellite images to help locate disasters that strike and the people affected. The website enables you to tag and label things like oil spills, wreckage, and floating rafts. The website’s past search campaigns have included searches during tornado, typhoon and airplane crash aftermaths.

Right now, TomNod’s focus is to to to find the missing Malaysian airplane that recently went down.

So what are you waiting for?

Help save the world now.
